The U.S. presidential decree that forbids the migrants from seven Muslim countries to enter the United States violates the international humanitarian law. Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, tweeted this on Monday, January 30.
Previously, on January 27, U.S. President Donald Trump signed the decree that suspended the program of hosting refugees in the USA. The document imposes the 90 days-long ban for migrants from Iraq, Iran, Yemen, Libya, Syria, Somalia and Sudan to enter the States.
Dozens of thousands of common U.S. citizens in 15 cities across the country took it to the streets, protesting against Trump’s decision.
Leaders of the Western governments criticized this step as well.
